Duduzane Zuma’s Political Life Causes Marriage Collapse

Duduzane Zuma and his stunning wife Shanice Stork are headed for a divorce. Several sources have confirmed that Stork moved out of her mansion with Zuma in March last year. She is reportedly back living with her parents. Zuma’s political aspirations have reportedly been the driving force behind the separation.


The hunky son of former President Jacob Zuma and Stork married in May 2015. The couple reportedly tied the knot in front of 500 guests at the New Apostolic Church in Newlands, Durban, New24 reported.

The former president was present at the wedding. However, Duduzane’s mother, Mozambican-born Kate Mansho, who was married to the former president in 1976, could not attend as she had reportedly committed suicide back in 2000, leaving five of her children, including Duduzane and his twin Duduzile behind.

According to Zimoja, Stork has left Duduzane. She reportedly moved out last year in March when she reached her limits with her politician husband. The couple has reportedly not been on the same page for a while due to Duduzane’s political ambitions and busy schedule.

A source speaking to Zimjola was quoted as saying,

“Things became worse before the November 2021 Local Government Elections. Duduzane cared about nothing but his political ambitions that he neglected his duties as a husband…

“There were always comrades in and out of their house; she could no longer take it…This annoyed her because she loves her space,” the source added.

Another source reportedly added that even when Duduzane was not working on his political career, he would be out and about and not behaving like a married man.


According to African News Agency, Duduzane, who is the Newland East ANC ward 11 branch chairperson in Durban, made his intentions to stand as a presidential candidate for the African National Congress (ANC) in next year’s elections. Unfortunately, Duduzane could not amass the required votes before the ANC 55th Elective Conference and ultimately lost, leaving Cyril Ramaphosa to contest against Dr Zweli Mkhize.
